So impressed with all the fabulous tweets yesterday! Well done, #vss365 team!
Today’s word might be a little tougher. Your #prompt is #fibrous.
(Did you see what I did there? Tough- fibrous- oh, never mind...)
Looking forward to reading the results!
Removed a painful
From inside my brain
Looked up at me
Its tiny mouth explained
“I am all your best ideas
I’ll die out here—I fear”
So with no hesitation
Back my ear
A Writer’s pain
To Keep My Muse In Here
Daddy’s words are #fibrous and bland,
while Mama’s are pure butterscotch pudding.
Sister’s words are lean but powerful,
and Brother’s are as ornate as a wedding cake.
You see what’s missing from this diet? Salt and acid.
That’s where I come in.
Dancing my fingers along the #fibrous threads of rope that would bring me peace.
Staring in the mirror, I see a face of the most bête noire I knew. I was unpredictable, audacious, an ugly weirdo caught on the edge of sanity.
I was dark
We play seek&hide
No golden recipe or
We'll never use the
to say wait&go
Take off my daltonian patch
to see hues of your soul
Heart logs crackle
like bolt from blue
Fire will foil #fibrous mesh
when Love grows
with weeds of its own
You told me so.
Coarse and #fibrous
By sway and song
Love's sweet rigour
Consigned to ground
As roots of roses
Who bud and bloom
We loved staying overnight with Irish Gran and Grandpa, but we dreaded getting dressed the next day as Gran would insist on brushing our mad curly hair.
Out would come her old #fibrous hairbrush, and however much she smiled, we knew it would be 2 minutes of agony! #vss365 https://t.co/YlezpIgFkq
your #fibrous verses
spun with golden threads of love
fabric of our souls
I can’t bear to live anymore. I plunge the knife into my belly.
Nothing comes out. I peel back the skin and find a paradise inside me. Green fields, blue skies, towering trees.
Their #fibrous roots slowly close up the hole I’ve made and we never speak of it again. #vss365
I missed the old days of my Grandfather. Where every act had hidden lessons within. Walk the woods. Down the tree. Shave away the #fibrous bark. Whittle. Sand. Smooth. Stain. It was only when he was gone, that I realized he wasn't just shaping the wood, he was shaping me.
I'm neither haute couture
Nor high cuisine
I'm queen of comforting puds
When World grows cold
& U reach 4 gloves
Warm your hands by fire of my words
Unknot the #fibrous tension of Life's demands
Sit a while
Let's Share a smile
Tendons slingshot blood into the darkness, saw slicing.
The little ones bite into the #fibrous tissue.
'Not yet,' I say. 'I'm not done.'
These gnomes really do take the pixie- so impatient.
But without feeding, it would be my wife on the block,
not our neighbour.
Some hints today as to who the @DNC
will throw under the bus in Election 2020. 👇👇👇

Conniving. Carnivorous. We think they’ll deliver us? With lobbyist entanglements? Most don’t consider us. They spend most of their time raising money to get elected. Companies write legislation. They pay pols who do what’s expected. It’s a #fibrous web. Voters ‘ say ebbs.#vss365 https://t.co/tnVXkvX5Pd
She used her sharpest knife, a magic blade she won on a bet from a Bulgarian warlock who (surprisingly) couldn’t hold his liquor.
It could cut through anything, he said.
She sawed and sawed, the #fibrous flesh barely parting.
It *couldn’t* carve a pumpkin.
Negative. Again. Another month and I’m not pregnant. My husband could never understand what it’s like to fail at being a woman.

#Fibrous threads unravel, all will perish, but time.
Michael holds the hour glass, each grain of sand a capture of life, a representation of fallen creations.
He faulters, though his task is simple; destroy.
'Why?' He queries.
He flips the glass, and time begins anew.
She was worn but would not break,
Molded with the times.
And in return for her virtue and patience,
Her integrity grew more defined.
Solid and #fibrous.
Smooth with a jagged heart.
God bless those who withstand,
Life is troubling, from the start.

He chewed the celery, his mastication loud.
“#Fibrous.” He said.
The neon penguins surrounding him broke out in raucous applause and squawked with glee.

The #fibrous threads circled the cave like nerve endings, branching like a tree. Riz had led me here because of some gem but I was starting to wonder about this little cave of his. I felt the pulsating walls and turned angrily to Riz, who smiled nervously.

Of gore and blood

“Whatcha doin, mom?”
“Writing a story with the #vss365 and #whistpr #prompts.”
“#Give me a word!”
“Yo, this virus be gettin me down, bruh. I’m like cough’n and—“
“Fibrous. With an F”
“What, like fever?”
I #swear I have nothing left to #give
My burden is #fibrous and thick
I want to let you live.

Feeble these attempts
to #acquiesce, let go
of the past - it grows
and twists with #fibrous
passion, life, breath -

Their backs touched, save for the #fibrous element between them. Smoke swirled around him adding ambience to the scene, like the pulp fiction novel he had read depicting the hero's rascally charm. On the other side of the door, she cursed their makeshift chastity belt.
I didn't know what it was. It should have scared me, but there was something endearing in its scruffy, #fibrous coat. I just wanted to pet it, so I did and we've been inseparable ever since.His name is Seltsam.

The majestic wings spanned 2 km. Solar panels woven into the #fibrous muscles act as energy source and sail.
"First interstellar ship and we send a dragon."
"Dragon's are also known for their foresight and wisdom."
"But this one is full of humans."
They sat huddled around the fire, bound by nothing more than a need to survive. When morning came, they would set off on separate paths, rivals once more, but, for now, chewing #fibrous meat and warming their hands, they found detente amid the snow.
